Lesson Three

Consequently

"Consequently" is very similar to "so" and "therefore." Like "therefore" it's a conjunctive adverb (the term is not important!). It usually appears in the middle of sentence, but it may also be used at the beginning of sentence. If you know what the word "consequence" means, you shouldn't have any trouble with this.
